Caterpillar Project – homeschooling Hijacking a classroom assignment


The 2nd grader has to make a model of a caterpillar so of course I morphed his assignment into a homeschool project, too.

I went a-googling and found some pictures for him. I like the real caterpillar with the labeled parts and the diagram and photo of the prolegs and true legs. The gross looking caterpillar is camouflaged to look like bird droppings – of course that went over great with the 2nd grader!

We are working on the model but I trimmed some cardboard and he is making a booklet to go with the model.
